October 29, 2015

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. — Turface Athletics™, a leading manufacturer of soil amendments and sports field conditioners, is continuing its long-standing partnership with the American Baseball Coaches Association with a five-year agreement. Turface® will become an ABCA official Double Partner.

“We proudly partner with organizations that provide a benefit to our members,” said Craig Keilitz, executive director of the ABCA. “Turface products are essential to keeping fields beautiful, safe and playable. The education Turface provides our members is a valuable tool that helps our coaches understand the products and how to use them correctly and efficiently.” 

“We’re committed to making fields safer and more playable with products that prevent rainouts and muddy, unsafe conditions,” said Jeff Langner, Turface Athletics brand manager. “Our partnership with the ABCA allows us to continue educating coaches on how to best maintain fields, helping both players and coaches.”

The partnership will run through August 2020 and includes a continuation of the field maintenance clinic at the annual ABCA Convention, along with a renewal of the annual ABCA/Turface Athletics Field Maintenance Awards & Scholarships. Through these, Turface recognizes outstanding fields and offers support to facilities in need of additional resources. Turface provides stipends and product donations to the recipients of both the awards and scholarships. 

Turface amendments and conditioners are used around the world to enhance field safety at all levels, from professional to municipal fields. The company’s products are used by collegiate as well as Minor and Major League Baseball teams and the National Football League to condition fields for better footing and playing surfaces. 

Turface is committed to providing educational materials, videos, field schematics and events to help groundskeepers and coaches grow their knowledge of sports field management. The company offers an extensive library of educational resources and helpful industry links at turface.com.
